Breast Reduction

4 January 2018

Breast Reduction surgery is performed to restore bigger than normal and mostly saggy breasts to normal size and their perkiness. Extremely large breasts can cause physical and psychological discomfort. They can cause back and neck aches. They can lead to eczema. Very large and saggy breasts restrict physical activities and sports. Breast reduction surgery is not only a cosmetic surgery but also a functional surgery because it provides the patient with physical comfort.

There are many surgical techniques available for breast reduction and are adapted to the size and shape of the breasts. The breast dimensions are determined by talking to the patient. After the necessary reduction in the operation, the surplus of the skin is removed and a new breast shape is given. The post-operative scars are mostly in a reverse T shape (around the nipple, down the bottom). Generally, after breast reduction operations, no excessive pain occurs. The pain that can occur during the first few days can be easily controlled with painkillers. Corsets can help relieve pain and swelling in the early days. Stitches do not need to be removed because they dissolve themselves.
